Tales from Atlea

Jeez, I can't seem to stop disappearing. Work, travel, and the growth and increasing activity of my airsoft team have pretty much kept me away from just about everything I used to enjoy, including video games. I know, right? Anyway, work's boring, and the traveling is work-related (I was away...
I've been in Richmond, Virginia for the past week to help open a couple new stores, and I've still got a week left before I go home. The good news is that the people here seem to be excited that we finally made the jump into Virginia. I've visited a couple of the other stores that've already...
A few months ago, I was put back in the dairy department at work. Since then, I've been promoted so that I'm now responsible for dairy, which means that I get to deal one-on-one with the sales reps from the various companies that, well, employ sales reps for our store. For the most part...
So, my part of the world was in the path of totality for the 2017 solar eclipse, and it was a beautiful, beautiful sight. I can honestly say that I understand now why religious significance was attached to these events. Everything went dark, it got really cold, and a shadow passed over the...
I mentioned last time that the heat out here can be brutal, so the local field hosted a half day instead of a full day. Travis and I were the only members of Easy out there today, and we rolled green again. It's easier than trying to get people to recognize our tan kits for, well, tan kits...
Easy made the trip down to Blue Hole for the skirmishes today. The field owner recently re-opened a brutal area called Patton Hill, a large, well, hill that's easily the highest point in the surrounding area, rising easily 120 feet above the rest of the AO. The sides of the hill are sheer and...
So, for the past three and a half hours, I've been re-writing the handbook I designed for our team's radio etiquette. The guys I sent it to tore it apart and pointed out the things that needed to be added. What I ended up with was something better-formatted and more concise than what I started...
Easy Tactical fielded a couple of prospective members this weekend, both of them made the cut. I had to work during the morning, so I didn't get to see Colton play, but he comes highly recommended by one of the guys I'm grooming for a team leader position, and that's all I needed. I did get to...
A couple months back, I saved my company a looot of money when I caught a delivery of perishable goods (dairy, frozen food) that wasn't properly refrigerated. We'd been the first stop on the route, too. My managers decided to submit my name for a loss prevention award, and I was one of three...
Got home from an airsoft event called Guns of Azerbaijan yesterday afternoon. My team (Easy Tactical Solutions) hooked up with Iron Sledge Airsoft to form 1st Squad for the Black Dogs mercenary company led by a guy called Deuce. Our mission gave us 24 hours to insert into the AO, secure...
Been awhile, maybe a year and a half since I last looked at this place. Glad to see everyone's still here, or at least that WF is still a thing. Not that I thought it wouldn't be. Updates! I've been promoted twice at Publix since I was last active here, and I'm conducting training for new...
Unfortunately, not today. My first day off in three weeks, feels kind of strange, really. One of the great things about having two jobs is that I have plenty of money. One of the worst things about having plenty of money is that there's always stuff to spend it on. This past week, I finally...
Haha, just kidding. I don't have time for other things. Publix has seen fit to work me forty hours a week, sometimes more (46 hours this week, which equals overtime pay), and I've still got my route with Coca-Cola, so I haven't had the most free time lately. It's been a bit of a drag on my...
I prefer to think of myself as a man with a warm heart and a cold mind, if only because it sounds better than alternatives like "sociopath," et cetera. Though I make friends easy enough, I don't tend to form attachments, and, unless I'm particularly attached, I can generally let go without too...
I'm not sure what I did, but whatever it was, I seemed to have done it right. She wants to see me again, or, at least, she says she does. We're going to go around and poke through some shops, maybe have lunch, spend some more time together and maybe get to know each other a little better... I...
Welp. I had dinner tonight with a lovely young lady, and got to know her a little better than I did. To be fair, we hadn't even spoken before I asked her out, but she's cute, she's interesting, and, all in all, she seems like a wonderful person. I'm not 100% sure whether she'll want to see me...
It's a topsy turvy world. One moment, I'm chugging happily along, content to be a supporting character in the play of everyone else's lives... the next minute, I find that I've been handed the reins of my own and now I'm steering happily along, heading well outside my comfort zone. It's... a...
The Ysaryngas rose against a backdrop of stars, their jagged peaks brightly illuminated in the light of the full moon. Though Vyoria was hidden beneath a thick blanket of winter snow, the night was mild enough to travel. Two riders, weary from years of hurried travel, followed the road north...
